I'm not sure about white with red markings but it sounds like the semi-urban legend of the Cleaner Wrasse. There are a few colour variations but the ones I've seen are blue with a black stripe. A marine fish that will feed of dead scales, parasites and general unwanted hangers on in the wild. In captivity they can provide a similar service but they don't eat "disease" just certain types of parasite. They can also starve in captivity or start chewing on more than just parasites causing more harm than good.
